3.0 out of 5 stars action-packed!, October 13, 2010
This review is from: Hyperactive (Paperback)
Kids will love this graphic novel, which takes "hyperactive" to entirely new level. While bored in class, Joey Johnson makes an amazing discovery - he can run so fast that time nearly stops around him. During gym, it's confirmed: Joey can run faster than a car and everyone can see him do it. After a trip to the doctor, Joey's parents are forced to put him under house arrest to protect him from unscrupulous sorts who might want to exploit his ability. These sorts do of course come out of the woodwork - salespeople, the mafia, lawyers, engineers, filmmakers, and finally an evil corporation willing to kidnap Joey to get his hyperactive blood. This is a book for fans of action, adventure, and not much else. Joey is never a fully realized character, and the villains who pursue him rely heavily on stereotypes to convey their motives. There are few words over all - much of the plot is conveyed through panels of Joey running. A quick, solid read for action fans.
